  • Error message from QC metrics

    I have realigned, recalibrated BAM files on which I am trying to run final QC metrics. I have tried running HS metrics and AlignmentSumaryMetrics and I get the following error messages.

    1. CalculateHSMetrics - "Sequence dictionaries are not the same size (0, 25)"
    Does this refer to the difference between my reference file and BMA file? Do I need to create a BAM Sequence dictionary for my reference file (in fasta format)?

    Runtime.totalMemory()=2058027008
    Exception in thread "main" net.sf.samtools.util.SequenceUtil$SequenceListsDifferException: Sequence dictionaries are not the same size (0, 25)

    2. Alignment Summary Metrics - myfile.bam has no sequence dictionary
    Again, does this mean that I need to make a separate sequence dictionary associated with myfile.bam? Presumably this is the source of the error above. Is it possible to generate a sequence dictionary from a bam file with Picard? It also says "If any reads in the file are aligned then alignment summary metrics collection will fail" (which I found confusing because I thought that the file was supposed to be aligned).


    WARNING 2011-01-05 11:36:59 CollectAlignmentSummaryMetrics myfile.bam has no sequence dictionary. If any reads in the file are aligned then alignment summary metrics collection will fail.

    I am sorry if these are really simple questions - I am totally new to all of these programs. I have tried searching through previous help questions on samtools and here . Part of the problem is that I can't work out exactly what a "sequence dictionary" is (other than a header file - which I am sure is so obvious that it doesn't require explaining!)

    If anyone can help I would be very appreciative!

    Thanks.

    Hi froggins,
    This is a forum for new (not commercially released) sequencing platforms. Much more chance of you getting a useful answer were you to post to the bioinformatics forum:

    Discussion of next-gen sequencing related bioinformatics: resources, algorithms, open source efforts, etc


    Good luck,

      Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
      by seqadmin


      The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

      Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
      by seqadmin




      The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
